American Studies department 
Seeks sep arate major status 



By Margaret Draper '77 

Students across the country are 
discovering American culture as a 
new area of study. This interest, 
some students feel has escaped 
Wellesley; American Studies is an 
intcr-dcpartmenlal major, but 
only one course. Extra- 
dcparlmentttl 335. is offered 
specifically for American Studies 
majors. Under the direction of 
Mr. Harold Vanderpool, Assis- 
tant Professor of Religion And 
Biblical Studies, there finally 
seems to be a definite movement 
on campus to make American 
Studies .i siandard department,' 
with a Staff and course offerings 
of its own. 

The main problem facing 
American Studies majors is the 
lack of unity and coherence in the 
courses available to them. Hav- 
ing taken courses in various 
departments on campus, they feel 
i he need to unify their studies into 
some idea of America's culture 
and heritage. L ; Iradcparlmental 
335 is the only assistance (hat l he> 
receive with this process; the ma- 
jors are grateful for this course, 
but feci the need for more similar 
to it. 



Mr. Vanderpool sees this un- 
ification of the courses as an im- 
porlanl goal for all the majors. He 
is als.) interested in students gain- 
ing ,i grasp of the diversity of the 
American experience. With this in 
mind, he hopes to bring Charles 
Kuralt. creator of the "On the 
Road" series for CBS News, to 
campus; this series attempts to 
show this diversity by bringing 
Stories of local customs and habits 
from around the country. Mr. 
Vanderpool also referred to a 
-ourse at Amherst entitled 
American Lives which could serve 
is the basis for an addition to 
Wcllesley's curriculum; this 
course not only investigates the 



lives of famous politicians and 
national leaders, but also of their 
lesser-known contemporaries. 

Mr. Vanderpool admits that the 
scarcity of course offerings has led 
many students to spend their 
junior year at such colleges as 
Amherst and Williams, where 
American Studies is a vital, pop- 
ular part of the curriculum. 
Michele Thorcn. who took 
American Studies at Amherst, 
described her professor as "The 
best lecturer I've ever heard." 
Only a few instructors on campus, 
such as Mr. Vanderpool and Ms. 
Phyllis Cole, Assistant Professor 
of English, gear their courses

January plans begin 



The lime for Winter Study was 
voted into the school calendar last 
spring, but the planning for this 
program has just begun. At a 
meeting held September 17, fif- 
teen of the approximately forty 
students attending volunteered to 
serve on the Core Committee, 
which will be responsible for co- 
ordinating Winter Study 1975.

Resident Program 
proposal discussed 



By Andrea Rohin '77 



Plans to establish a Residence 
Hall Program Series were discuss- 
ed at an organizational meeting 
held recently with Wilma Scott 
Heide Wcllesley's Guest-in- 
Residence. and past president of 
NOW. 

This series would be based on 
aspects of feminism, and how it 
affects the Wellesley student. 
1 he series is tentatively set up for 
four separate week night meetings 
in various residence halls. 

The meeting centered around 
the locus of the series, and possi- 
ble ideas for the program. Many 
ideas were proposed, one of which 
was asking Ivy Battini. a feminist 
folk singer to perform. 

The topics discussed included: 
human sexuality on campus. 



feminism to naturalize social 
relationships, the definition of 
feminism. A feminist critique of 
Wellesley courses, and feminism 
as a value system. 

A title for the first program was 
suggested by Kathy Humphrey 
'75: "You don't have to be a man 
to be sexist."' 

Ms. Heide kept reminding the 
group that in order to plan the 
program effectively, they must 
keep in mind their original objec- 
ine: to promote a sense of defini- 
tion to feminism, and it's im- 
plications to us individually and as 
a college. The group intends to 
gear its program to attract and 
nol offend the college community, 
and to urge Wellesley students to 
start thinking about and reacting 
to feminism. 



Educational Research and 
Development Committee, and 
Mr. Steve Nelson, Director of 
Student Activities, have 
volunteered their lime to help the 
Core Committee. 

Mr. Nelson sees Winter Study 
as a "fun, creative time". "The 
main value of Winter Study will 
be to provide a period of time for 
Wellesley students to do what 
they want to do." According to 
Mr. Nelson, the curriculum will 
be very flexible allowing for either 
concentrated study in one 
specialized course or experimen- 
tation in two or three subjects. 
There is also the possibility that 
seniors will be able to do concen- 
trated 350 and 370 work. 

Howe\er. the committee has 
ycl to decide how to organize the 
curriculum. Possibilities include a 
letter to the entire college com- 
munity encouraging anyone in- 
terested in leaching or par- 
ticipating in a course to contact 
the committee. Another possibili- 
t\ is the active solicitation of 
possible "resource people" from 
the faculty, student body, and. the 
staff. The committee will then dis- 
tribute a catalog containing (he 
tentative course offerings. 

A few basic facts about Winter 
Term have been established: the 
program will be voluntary, it will 
be non-credit, and it must be self- 
sustaining, entailing a maximum

"It's more than a labor dis- 
pute." stated Michael Sullivan, 
coordinator of the Chaplaincy 
United Farm Workers Project. 
"Its a basic religious and moral 
issue." he commented on the farm 
workers' cause. 

The Farm Workers Project i- a 
group composed of students 
working to support the cause of 
the United Farm Workers. "This 
year, the group will he primarily 
focused on supporting the boycott 
against Gullo Wines." stated 
Michael Sullivan. "We also hope 
to make the boycott of non-U F. 
W. lettuce a Wellesley College 
policy." he added. 

The Farm Workers Project got 
underway last year when an es- 
timate of the amount of U. F. W. 
lettuce used in the dining hit lis was 
proven inaccurate. Nearly 800 
students signed ' a petition rc- 
questing the Food Service Ad- 
minislrulion to purchase only U. 
F. W lei luce, and if not available, 
to substitute other greens for the 
lettuce. 

This policy was endorsed by the 
Wellesley Senate, but lapses when 
college is nol in session, "By mak- 
ing the boycott a Wellesley 
College policy, lettuce bought any 
time during the year would have 
to be United Farm Workers 
Union lettuce." said Sullivan. 
Schneider Food Service has also 
cooperated with (he lettuce 
boycott.

workers' cause by the Farm 
Workers Project and many other

Schneider's additions 
Befuddle consumers 

An Open Letter to Mr. Turgeon, Schneider Food Services: 

Dear Mr. Turgeon: 

We thought we would put together some of the questions 
which students and faculty members have been asking late- 
ly about Schneider Food Services. Some of us are confused 
about innovations at Schneider ... and prices. We're sure 
that you have all of the appropriate facts and figures to 
answer our questions. 

— Why is it necessary for Schneider to allocate what 
must have been considerable funds to purchase a new cash 
register? Couldn't that money have been used to defray the 
cost of food at Schneider for the students and faculty 
members? 

— The new deli-bar is fantastic ... for the faculty. How 
come the deli-bar disappears at 5 p.m.?? To tell you the 
truth, those hand-made sandwiches are better than the 
others that sit in the refrigerator unit all day. 

— If the new cash register is supposed to speed things up 
at Schneider (we're guessing that that is part of your 
rationale for its purchase), why are the lines in the evenings 
still incredibly long and slow??? 

— Where is the old cash register??? Couldn't we have two 
lines?? 

— While certain food items at Schneider are reasonably 
priced, others seem exorbitantly over-priced. The bagels, 
for example. 40 cents???? 

— Could we have some fresh vegetables once in a while, 
besides the salad bar? For those of us who eat regularly at 
Schneider, malnutrition threatens. 

— The hot cider and hot chocolate are welcome 
beverages during the winter. Could we have some soup, too? 

— We realize you're operating at a loss — maybe the; 
college could subsidize even larger losses? \ 

It's not that we aren't pleased with "some of the new- 
Schneider services, its just that its the only place on campus; 
that we have as an alternative to dorm dining. And we feel; 
that "monopolies" like yours have to be a little more! 
responsive than usual to community demands and- 
questions. ; 

Could you write to us soon, and send along a few charts! 
and figures? We're starving for information.

Letters to the Editor 




Honor code examined 



Library fails to solicit 
Student views about hours 

The Wellesley College Library does not seem to be in- 
terested in getting student feedback concerning library 
hours. The staff can point with pride to the fact that, when 
compared to 57 other small, private schools, Wellesley's 
library is among the top in number of hours open — 104% 
hours a week. 

Perhaps such a favorable position when compared to 
other schools makes the College feel that students are 
satisfied. They are not. 

Last year a questionnaire concerning the library was cir- 
culated before Christmas vacation. This was not an under- 
taking of the College Library; a member of the class of '74 
initiated the effort and partially tabulated the results; 

Eight hundred completed questionnaires — a sizeable 
response on this campus — were collected. Four hundred 
of those were tabulated, and the results were presented to 
the library staff. 

Among those results was the indication that a substantial 
number of students wanted the library to remain open until 
midnight on Saturdays during reading periods and exam 
weeks. 

The library staff obviously was willing to comply with de- 
mand when it was shoved at them. No other expansion of; 
hours was implemented because, Ms. Brown, head: 
librarian, asserted, there was not any marked consensus on 
other suggested changes. A glance at the tabulation of 
results reveals otherwise: a significant number of people — ; 
70% — said they would use the library if it were open after 9 
p.m. on Saturdays. 

For financial reasons, says Ms. Brown, there is no 
possibility of hiring the additional employees that would be 
needed if hours were extended. Also, dormitory study 
rooms should be sufficient she felt, for those wishing to 
work at "odd hours". 

True, the Wellesley College Library is open over an im- 
pressive number of hours, and the staff responds to some 
student demands. But why has the library expended so 
much effort in ascertaining personal preferences regarding 
library furniture and practically no effort on the important 
issue of library hours? Why was the only recent campus- 
wide canvas on that subject initiated by a student, and not 
even fully tabulated? Must the Wellesley NEWS conduct a 
survey of its own?

By Meg Sencinditer '75 

To I he Editor: 

The NEWS recently carried the 
editorial "Reexamination of 
honor system exposes priorities of 
students" (Sept. 20, 1974). It 
described our honor system as 
"ailing", yet asserted that "the 
honor code should not, in princi- 
ple, have lo be debated in a public 
forum." It asked, "Can College 
Government force students to sign 
an honor pledge?", yet maintained 
that "an honor system, one which 
works, is an essential component 
of our community." It mentioned 
the proposed alternative of 
"middlc-rungc procedures" to 
effect "a middle-range honesty". 
In short, the editorial provacativc- 
ly outlined the status of a concept 
fundamental to our modus 
operandi at Wellesley. In theory, 
it should have drawn a large, im- 
mediate response from members 
of our community. It did not. 
(See Wellesley NEWS: Sept. 27, 
1974). The appearance of the 
editorial and our lack of response 
to it suggest that honor at 
Wellesley, as well as the "issue" 
of honor, arc not merely ailing, 
but are rapidly approaching an 
undignified death. 

This apparent state of affairs 
prompts the following opinions 
about it. They admit a strong 
bias. Perhaps, to some readers, 
several of them will seem out- 
rageous or insulting. They 
should. That is, they should hit 



... honor at Wellesley ... rapidly 
approaching an undignified death. 



their readers at some level and 
elicit from them some definitive 
reaction. It is to be hoped that, in 
this way, they will serve to keep 
alive the honor code "issue" until 
our decisive action on it insures 
the longevity of "a system of total 
trust and limitless discretion" at 
Wellesley. 

I.) We must deal with the 
nature of honesty, which is ab- 
solute. To be honest means to be 
thoroughly honest. No departure 
from thorough honesty qualifies 
honesty. It simply establishes and 
qualifies dishonesty. If, for exam- 
ple, a student steals one book 
from the library, and a second stu- 
dent steals ten books, we cannot 
say the first student is more 
honest than the second, or say the 
second is less honest than the first. 
We must say both are dishonest, 
and then let the number of books 
stolen in each case qualify the ex- 
tent of their respective dishonesty. 
The point is, there is no middle 
ground between honesty and dis- 
honesty. 

2.) If our honor code is to have 
any value, it must emulate the 
nature of the principle it claims to 
uphold. Like honesty, it too must 
establish "an all-or-nothing 
proposition". Otherwise, it con- 
tradicts its founding principle and 
is worthless. 

3.) If our honor system is to be 
effective, we must subscribe to it 
in its entirety. That is, we must 
allow for everyone to share fully 
l he responsibility and privilege of 
participating in "a system of total 
trust and limitless discretion". If 
we cannot accept it completely 
and universally, then, as the 
cdilorial suggested, we must 
"return to a more rigid system of 
controls". That is, we must give 
up the whole privilege of in- 
dividual control because we can- 
not sustain our individual respon- 
sibility to be honest. 

4.) "Middle-range procedures" 
introduce needless confusion. In 
contrast with an unqualified 
honor system, they call for 'con- 
ditional trust' and 'limited dis- 
cretion'. The confusion ensues 
when we try to answer such 
questions as: Under what con- 
ditions are we to be trusted? 
What are the criteria for deciding 
these conditions? Who decides 
these conditions and criteria? We 
must answer a similar list of 
questions about 'limits'. And 
since cases of trust and discretion 
for which no conditions or limits 
•have been prescribed arc bound to 
arise, we must answer even 
stickier questions: What 
procedure should we follow? 
Does a reversion to a personal 
rule of thumb fall inside or outside 
the system? If the actions of a stu- 



dent arc prompted by personal 
ethics, and are found to be am- 
biguous (by whom?), to whom 
does she appeal for justice? 
Middle-range procedures imply a 
spectrum of rather ludicrous, but 
necessary questions and, we may 
suppose, of answers of the same 
sort. They open a Pandora's Box 
of moral and practical dilemmas. 

5.) The ethical compromise, of 
which dilemmas are symptomatic, 
is this: middle-range procedures 
impose restrictions on those who 
arc honorable in an effort to ac- 
commodate those who are not. 
They grant everyone the limited 
degree of responsibility and 
privilege, and they deprive 
everyone of the same degree of 
responsibility and privilege. In so 
doing, they neither effectively pre- 
vent dishonorable actions nor 
effectively promote honorable 
ones. Middle-range measures 
constitute, in effect, a morally 
non-committal solution for a 
moral problem. Resorting to such 
measures is like refusing to cast a 
ballot in an effort to decide a tied 
vote. It does not work in theory; 
it cannot work in practice. 

Further, such measures put 
honor and integrity on the defen- 
sive. Installation of a turnstile in 
the library, for instance, reflects 
the assumption (hat everyone 
passing through it may be guilty 
ol thievery. In other words, it im- 
plies that we believe everyone 
guilty until proven innocent. We 
penalize the honorable without 
cause. In this instance, they' must 
submit to yet another 
bureaucratic measure which will 
inconvenience and harrass them 
more efficiently than it will catch 
book thieves. 

6.) The maintenance of our 
honor system without the written 
committment of the entire student 
body has proved unsuccessful. 
The introduction of optional 
pledge-signing — a middle-range 
procedure — may be just as un- 
successful, if not more so. One 
possible consequence of the policy 
might be the absurd division of the 
campus into the signers' group 
and the non-signers' group. Of 
course, (he division would be 
meaningless. Inevitably we would 
have some dishonorable signers 
and some honorable non-signers. 
Nevettheless. we might have to 
deal with ihe distinction as though 
it were real. For example, we 
might have to answer the ques- 
tion, Ms a girl who signed the 
pledge and who is caught cheating 
on an exam subject to the same 
penalty as one who has not signed 
Ihe pledge, but who is also caught 
cheating?' If so, what good is the 
pledge? If not, can we still con- 

... our profession of the merits of a 
Wellesley education ... tragically 
misleading vanity. 

sider our laws impartial? 

These questions presuppose 
several others: How would the 
pledges be filed? Who would have 
access to them? Under what con- 
ditions? Within what limits? 
What decisions, if any, would be 
made on the basis of a student's 
pledge-card status? If the cards 
were computer filed, and no one 
had access to them under any con- 
ditions, what would be their pur- 
pose? Can we assume that the 
signing of the pledge would func- 
tion as a psychological deterrent 
lo stealing and cheating when we 
must already allow for the 
possibility that there will be dis- 
honorable signers? And. above 
all. how are these matters to be 
adjudicated, and by whom? 

7.) Middle-range procedures 
seem to point out many ways lo go 
wrong and few ways lo go right. 
By complicating our ethical and 
methodological guidelines, they 
create a multitude of moral and 
procedural loopholes. By side- 
stepping the absolute nature of 
honesty, they tend to undermine 
our honor system more than they 
tend to reinforce it. In light of 
these conclusions and the dis- 
satisfaction with both the 
anonymous honor code and 
proposed rigid controls, we should 
review the merits of an honor 
system whose only 'control' is the 
mandatory signing of a pledge. 

8.) In broad terms, a signed 
pledge simply means that a stu- 
dent commits herself to upholding 




the integrity of our academic 
community by preserving her per- 
sonal integrity. Universal pledge- 
signing would insure a common 
understanding — of what our per- 
sonal and institutional integrity 
entails. It would emphasize 
equally the code's efficacy as a 
standard by which to determine 
individual culpability, and as a 
preserver of the individual rights 
and privileges of its adherents. 
Under this system, the dis- 
honorable would be as free as ever 
to violate the code. However, the 
majority of us would be as free as 
ever lo maintain it. If there is any 
psychological advantage to be 
gained, it is to be gained here. For 
a student found cheating or steal- 
ing would have to face not only 
that charge, but also the charge of 
perjuring herself. 

9.) Mandatory pledge-signing 
should present no problem as 
there is no ethical basis for a 



refusal to sign. One may refuse to 
sign our personal preference, but 
this is quite another matter. 
Perhaps it is time for some of us 
to put aside personal preference 
for the sake of the well-being of 
the community. Perhaps it is time 
for some of us to subdue feelings 
of self-righteous indignation when 
our integrity is, as some think, 
challenged by a pledge-signing 
policy. Perhaps it is time for 
some of us to slop viewing the 
pledge as an affront to our digni- 
ty, and to begin to see it as an un- 
equivocal reaffirmation of our 
failh in Wellesley's integrity and 
our participation in that integrity. 
And perhaps it is lime for some of 
us to admit that we cannot 
simultaneously claim that a viable 
honor system is essential to our 
community, and ask whether we 
can legislate mandatory pledge- 
signing. Either an honor system is

New law seems to open files, 
Yet access to records limited 



By Bettina Blake 
Dean of Academic Programs 

To the Editor: 

While your coverage of the 
Family Educational Rights and 
Privacy Act carries out that part 
of the law which requires that 
students be informed of the new 
rights accorded them, it overstates 
the case. 

It is not true that "Wellesley 
College students now have access 
to all official College records in 
their name," as your lead sentence 
states. Although the Act appears 
to grant blanket access to the in- 
dividual concerned, some records 
may be protected by other existing 
legislation (e.g. psychiatric 
records), others by prior com- 
mitments to maintain confiden- 
tiality (e.g. letters of recommen- 
dation). We do not know yet 
which confidential records will be 
open to individual inspection, nor 
do we know how we will have to 
modify our present ways of assur- 
ing the privacy of each record. 
Even the definition of an "official 
record" is by no means as clear as 
your article implies. It is impor- 
tant that all of us — faculty, ad- 
ministrative officers, and students 
alike — refrain from making 
premature changes in our policies 
;md procedures until the 
provisions of the Privacy Act arc 



clarified. 

There is more time for clarifica- 
tion, it now appears, than either 
the alert News reporter who first 
tried lo see her record or I realized 
earlier. We are informed that Ihe 
Act becomes effective on 
November 19, 1974, but that its 
implementation may be post- 
poned beyond that date. The Act, 
or the "Buckley Amendment," 
was added to the 1974 education 
bill on the floor of the Senate 
without any hearings or con- 
sideration in committee, and its 
numerous ambiguities and over- 
sights are now being challenged by 
various groups. 

The positive intent of "right lo 
know" legislation, which is 
generally acknowledged, must be 
weighed against its effects on the 
reliability of written records and 
evaluations. Conflicting concerns 
for openness and privacy musl be 
fairly reconciled. 

Wellesley needs lo find its own 
consensus and may also wish lo 
speak out on some issues publicly. 
Next Monday I plan to go to the 
President's Advisory Council. 
which is made up of faculty, ad- 
ministralivc, and student 
representatives, for advice on 
how, as a community, to move 
ahead in Ihe coming weeks.

On Honor, 

Wisdom, 

And Trust 

By Ruth Anna Putnam 
Associate Professor of Philoso phy 

Recently the honors code has 
been a subject of discussion. The 
question has been: docs it work 
(or does it work well enough), or 
do wc need proctors and other 
kinds of watchdogs? But in earlier 
years discussion has centered also 
on the necessity for or ap- 
propriateness of, "It is the respon- 
sibility of every member of the 
college community to report to 
the class dean any apparent viola- 
tion of this principle." (Articles of 
Government Book If. Article, 
XV, section 2) 

Ideally we conceive of_ 
Wellcsley as a society of scholars, 
of persons devoted to the pursuit 
of wisdom. In reality Wclleslcy is 
also an institution which prepares 
students to pass examinations the 
passing of which is required if one 
wishes to have certain types of 
careers. These two goals come in 
conflict. For example, if I pursue 
wisdom I am interested in finding 
out what I don't know — cheating 
would prevent me from finding 
out, so I don't cheat. If I need 
high grades to get into law school 
I am interested in showing not 
merely how much I know but that 
I know more than you — hence 
the temptation to cheat, or 
plagiarize, to make myself look 
belter than I am. 

Wcllcsley's rules concerning 
academic honesty are an attempt 
to make the judging of achieve- 
ment and comparative achieve- 
ment as fair as possible. They are 
also an attempt to accomplish this 
in a way which minimizes in- 
terference with the pursuit of 
wisdom. Thus, while we may have 
disagreements on points of detail, 
we may be said to have consented 
to the rules. 

Inter alia Welleslcy is a society 
composed of young adults. We 
are, more or less, ready for the 
responsibilities of citizenship. We 
shall become more ready only is 
wc practice these responsibilities 
not through external compulsion 
("Big Sister is watching you") but 
through an inner commitment. 
This goal is furthered by 
operating under an honors code 
and would be frustrated by a 
system of "watchdogs." 

So far I^have argued for the 
honors code. And in compliance 
with that code let me acknowledge 
that the source of my reasons may 
be found in the writings of Aristo- 
tle. 

But if we have no external 
watchdogs, what should happen if 
someone's internal watchdog (her 
sense of honor, or fair play, or 
justice) fails. Aristotle doesn't 
help me here. 

Experience of living in a police 
slate has given me a strong aver- 
sion against "citizen-informers." 
Don't say, "but that police state 
perpetuated a bad system, we wish 
to perpetuate a good system." The 
"citizen-informers" often thought 
they were perpetuating a good 
system. 

We argued against "Big Sister 
is watching you" on the grounds 
that as long as Big Sister watches 
we don't build character, do we 
build character if little sisters are 
watching? 

But then, on the other hand, if 
no one watches, will it become 
true that "nice girls finish last"? Is 
that the kind of society in which 
we want to live? 

It's easy to propose the ideal 
solution: exams on which you 
can't cheat, papers which do not 
benefit from plagiarism, etc. But 
thai ideal is nol realizable in all 
courses in all fields. 

My personal view, considering 
all our aims: wisdom, jobs, honor, 
trust (I have nol said anything 
about trust; how thai conies in is 
left as an exercise lo the reader) is: 
if we can't trust each other then 
lei's not have an honors code. If 
wc can. then lei's nol lake awaj 
with one hand what we have just 
given with I lie other. The present 
honors code is a dishonorable 
compromise.

From Cold War to Hot Peace 



By Pierre Hassner 



Editors Note: Pierre Hassner is 
the second guest scholar to par- 
ticipate in Wellesley's Barnette 
Miller lecture series. He kindly 
submitted to NEWS the following 
article that originally appeared in 
the New York Times last year in 
an aborted farm. Excerpts from a 
personal interview with Dehra 
Knopman and Florence Davis 
conducted September 30, 1974 
have been included. 

Professor Hassner is currently 
Professor of Politics at the 
University of Bologna. He has 
authored many articles on 
political philosophy and inter- 
national politics. 

Docs the era of negotiation 
- spell the end of the era of confron- 
tation or its beginning? The 
troubles of Mr. Brezhnev with dis- 
sidents and those of Mr. Nixon 
with Congress, widely different as 
they are, suggest a common 
answer: detente may bring the 
beginning of the real confronta- 
tion, that of each society with 
itself, upon which its confronta- 
tion with other ultimately 
depends. 

Increased economic contacts 
with the Wesl lead the Soviet 
leaders to increased repression 
within their own society in order 
to avoid the ideological con- 
tamination; but, in an era or com- 
munication, this repression, in 
turn, cannot be hidden from the 
West and cannot but harm the 
very economic cooperation which 
is being sought. In the West, 
delenle challenges the necessity of 
defense and the authority of 
governments, to the point where ii 
becomes hard to maintain the 
military strength and the 
diplomatic flexibility which made 
it possible in the first place. 

Only now do we really see the 
ambiguous and paradoxical 
character of the era of negotia- 



tion, which had been covered up 
by its initial and important 
successes: on the one hand all this 
spectacular activity basically 
amounts lo "recognizing 
realities'", i.e. to accepting the 
status quo; but on the other hand, 
Ihis recognition of the status quo 
could activate psychological and 
social forces which might under- 
mine it far more powerfully, 
because more unpredictably than 
any diplomatic or military undcr- 
laking. 

Rarely have force and 
diplomacy rested upon such im- 
plicit gambles about their effects 
on long-range historical, political 
and economic, but above all, 
social and psychological 
processes, Yet nobody knows to 
what extent they can be 
manipulated, reserved, influenced, 
controlled or limited by treaties or 
by troops, 

In the long run, who can 
possibly pretend lo know whether 
the invasion of Czechoslovakia 
has retarded or accelerated (he 
waning of Soviet influence on 
Eastern Europe, whether the 
meaning of Brandt's Oslpolitik 
lies m the acceptance of Ger- 
many's division or in the adoption 
of the only possible way to sur- 
mount it, whether East-West in- 
dustrial cooperation favors the 
liberalization of the Soviet regime 
or enables the Soviet leaders to 
dispense with it, whether military 
superiority still leads to an in- 
crease in political influence. 

In olher ages, force and 
diplomacy led to conquests or to 
reversals of alliances. During the 
Cold War, such modifications of 
the siaius quo were impossible, 
the situation was frozen by the 
confrontation, the two blocs weld- 
ed by the threat, real or supposed, 
of the enemy, the status quo was 
upheld by the very fact of not be- 
ing recognized. The Cold War, 
was in fact characterized by the 



triumph of the defensive, hidden 
end protected by verbal offensive. 
The detente does not necessarily 
disturb the balance between 
alliances or regimes, but it docs 
lend to make them much more 
vulnerable to each other. From 
the moment the two super- 
powers, the two alliances, the two 
Europes, the Two Gcrmanys, the 
two types of society recognize 
each others' real game, whether 
intentional or not, begins, It has 
little lo do with conquest or even 
wilh active subversion. Rather it 
has been rightly called 
"competitive decadence"; it con- 
cerns the comparative ability of 
societies to resist the forces of dis- 
integration which cat away at all 
of them and which tend to be en- 
couraged by their interpcnelra- 
tion. 

A new stage of "hot peace" has 
replaced the cold war. In a way, it 
stands in the same relationship to 
its predecessor as the cold war did 
to hot or violent war; it is still a 
relationship of conflict, but is 
removed one stage further from a 
direct challenge to the other side's 
possessions, institutions, regimes, 
and also from the use of physical 
force. The challenge and ihe 
threat remain at least in part, but 
they come as much from within as 
from without; their character is 
even more indirect and less ex- 
plicit. 

But it may be wrong lo assume 
that the farther one gets from war 
and propaganda the closer one is 
to peace and reconciliation. In 
this new stale of ambiguity, 
situations may thaw without being 
solved, isolation may be broken in 
favour of asymmetrical penctra- 
lion or imbalance ralher than of 
reconciliation. There may always 
be enough social ferment lo pre-

vent stabilization through freez- 
ing, enough rigidity lo prevent 
stabilization through adaptation, 
enough communication and con- 
vergence to prevent stabilization 
through isolation, enough separa- 
tion and divergence lo prevent 
stabilization through integration. 
Perhaps, then, a stale of agitated 
immobility rather lhan either 
revolution or integration is 
characteristic of the post-cold war 
system as it stems to be ol ttlC 
post-industrial society, with 
diplomatic activism being the 
equivalent of social unrest and 
hoth being the expression of ihe 
gap between a declining 
legitimacy and a persisting struc- 
ture. The essential characteristic 
of this stale is neither force nor 
cooperation but the constant in- 
fluence of societies on one another 
within ihe framework of a com- 
petition whose goals are less and 
less tangible, whose means are less 
and less direct, whose conse- 
quences are less and less 
calculable, precisely because they 
involve activities rather lhan 
strategies and because these ac- 
tivities are important as much 
because of [heir effects on whal 
societies are as on what they do. 
The real race may be less lo in- 
crease one's comparative power 
than to decrease one's com- 
parative vulnerability. I o 
manipulate nol only an op- 
ponent's weaknesses but one -

sion or lo control contagious ex- 
plosions lo modify or maintain

tations.

Cicada and Related Arthropod 
Societies Rally at Woods Hole 



By Jan Shorey '75 



(Editor's note: Jan Shorey is a 
senior biology major.) 

What could be more delicate 
than a Manet, more meticulous 
than a watchmaker, more in- 
tricate lhan an IBM-360. and 
more addictive lhan a good 
"Asimov?" Cast aside your mam- 
malian prejudice and you will be 
compelled lo answer, truthfully, 
INVERTEBRATES! 

I spent this past summer al the 
Marine Biological Laboratory 
(MBL) in Woods Hole. Mass., 
being introduced to the world of 
the research scienlisl and the fan- 
tastic realm of marine in- 
vertebrate zoology. The first six 
weeks of ihe summer were 
devoted lo a course entitled I X- 
pcrimental Invertebrate Zoology 
and (he lasl six weeks, to a 
research project involving ihe 
bioluminescense of a colonial 

bvdroid. 

MBL was incorporated in 1888 
.mil is now one of (his country's 
m. ist highl) regarded marine 
stations. It is privately owned and 
managed by the corporation ol 
scientists ami scholars who form 
ils working community. Il is in 
peuk operation during the 
summer when researchers are free 
lo leave their home institutions, 
although il is "P 1 -'" year-round. 
While working in the corporately 
owned labs, scientists are free to 



investigate topics of their own in- 
terest This privilege coupled with 
excellent laboratory facilities and 
location plus a superb library has 
made MBL a Mecca for both 
U.S. and foreign research 
biologists and biochemists. That 
lad, in turn (and closer lo home) 
means ihut MBL is a fine place 
for fledgling biologists to "meet 
ihe right people al ihe right lime." 

The major concern of the Cor- 
poration is to maintain an ex- 
cellenl research facility for highly 
qualified investigators. However, 
in the interest of training future 
investigators the lab admits aboul 
150 students lo ils summer 
programs in Embryology, Ex- 
citable Membrane Biophysics and 
Physiology, Invertebrate 
Zoology, Marine Botany. Marine 
l v. .i l ii g y . Neurobiology, 
Physiology, and Reproductive 
Biology. Each course is described 
as "intensive." Lei me tell you 
what thai means, in terms ol 
"Invert." Lectures (excellent!) 
were delivered Mon. - Sal. from 
8:15 until 9:30, and were followed 
by laboratory work until one 
found oneself unable lo focus 
one's microscope Both the lab 
and library were open 24 hrs per 
day. 

The first 2 weeks of the course 
dealt with a phyletic survey of 
marine invertebrate fauna ... at 
ihe rate of a phylum per day ... 
woosh! I ah work during Ihis lime 



involved playing wilh at least 6 lo 
8 living reprcsenlatives of each 
phylum in order lo learn their 
iraks. Lectures during the lasl 4 
weeks of Ihe course covered areas 
of invertebrate physiology that 
were of special interest to (he 
stall: lor example, osmoregula- 
tion, bioluminescence, behavior of 
boring gastropods (hole-making!), 
and the innervation of insect mus- 
cle. Throughout Ihe summer, the 
class look field trips to nearby salt 
marshes and intertidul /ones. 

I spent a two-week period 
working with Dr. Robert 
Jo.iephson (UC, Irvine) on the 17- 
yr Cicada. Dissecting one of Ihe 
critiers is like culling open a 
guitar! All the heller lo sing wilh, 
and win. wants lo eat when you're 
only above ground for 2 days once 
every 17 years'' Specifically, I 
used Coball Chloride staining 
techniques in an effort lo locale 
the cell bodies ol those nerves 
which service Ihe dorsal 
longitudinal flight muscle. Olher 
members O.I ihe 17-yr. Cicada and 
Related Arthropod Society (to 
meet again in 1991!) did in- 
tercellular recording from the 
Lymbal muscles and the tympanic 
nerves, 

During the next Iwo-wcck I d> 
period. I worked under Dr. James 
M o r i n ( Li C L A ) on the 
bioluminescence of several 
bydroids and a charming lillle 
scale worm. Much of my initial

is a phenomenon o( the last 
twenty-five years, although 
knowledge of the therapeutic 
qualities of music has existed 
since the beginning of history. 
Still unknown to many people, 
music Ihcrapy is becoming in- 
creasingly respected and its use 
more widespread. In fact, the ma- 
jority ol stale schools as well as 
private schools for exceptional 
children in Massachusetts have 
one or more registered music 
therapists on their staff. 

In short, music therapy is the 
use ol music-related activities lo 
make ihe behavior of an in- 
dividual more adaptive As in any 
therapy, the goals and techniques 
are highly individualized for each 
case, but there arc some 
generalities. With retarded 
children, for example, shorl, 
brightly harmonized songs can 
help leach rudimentary reading 
skills such as prepositional con- 
cepts as well as numbers, colors, 
and so on. Emotionally disturbed 
children can benefit from im- 
provising in the penlalonic scale, 
whole lone scale, or wilh Indian 
ragas which all provide audio 
"successes" and can be either 
relaxing or releasing experiences, 

Mosi disturbed or retarded peo- 
ple suffer from a "failure orien- 
lalion" 1 herefore. the general 
goal is in give them a sense of self- 
worth and self-confidence. This is 
accomplished bj allow me such 
persons lo huve repeated success 
experiences which help lo open 
lines ..I communication in in- 
iliuting or developing speech, es- 
tablish acceptable behaviors, in- 
crease memory and attention

such as the reed horns and pen- 
latome zithers allow any person, 
no mailer how handicapped, lo 
produce music successfully. Songs 
by Paul Nordoff and Clive Rob- 
bins, lor example, are phrased as 
closely to speech as possible. 
Ilicse songs use Ihe "opening" in- 
lervals of the fourth and fifth and 
incorporate such devices as un- 
usual dissonant harmonics and 
hanging dominant sevenths which 
very lew people can resist resolv- 
ing. Such devices are particularly 
effective in initiating speech in 
non-verbal children. 

Effectiveness is music therapy's 
shining quality During my 350 
field work. I saw blind, retarded 
erib cases smile in delight, doubl- 
ing ihe amount of their ver- 
bal)/, il ions after hearing a 
therapist mirror back, in a 
rhythmic and melodic way. the 
sounds thai they had made. I saw 
disturbed, hyperactive children 
soothed and absorbed in im- 
provising on a penlalonic scale of 
resonator bells. The only other 
time (hey were that restful, I was 
told, wis liter a large dosage of 
niahn or some other depressant. I 
also had the rare opportunity of 
witnessing an autistic child actual- 
ly respond to another human be- 
ing, in this case, a music therapist, 
llicsc siicec-s situations arc not 
the rare exceptions. 



Ii is not the therapist or Ihe 
music alone that makes music 
Ihcrapy work. Rather, il is the 
combination ol a sensitive, skill- 
ed, therapist-musician, using a 
wonderful, therapeutic tool. 
Progress in music therapy is slow 
Usually hcing measured in years 
rather than weeks or months, 
however, what is measured is 
positive There are very few peo- 
ple with any type of handicap that 
do not respond to music. This 
practically universal response is 
music therapy's unique power, for 
n cun be used in establishing a line 
ol communication with a person 
when all else has failed.

Program studies surrealism 



Since 1974 is the fiftieth an- 
niversary of the founding of 
Surrealism, a program com- 
memorating this event appears es- 
pecially appropriate within the 
context of the College Centennial 
celebration. The committee in 
churge of this program has 
attempted to plan a number of 
events which will illustrate the im- 
portance of Surrealism, the extent 
and depth of its influence. 

The true significance and 
lasting influence of Surrealism arc 
commonly ignored, although far 
more than any other movement of 
this nature, it revolutionized 
Western culture. Its founder, An- 
dre Breton, was a medical student 
specializing in psychiatry. During 
World War I, he treated shell- 
shocked soldiers and he was one 
of the first in France to show an 
interest in Freud's theories, 
although he had strong reser- 
vations about Freud's attitude 
toward conventional morality, 

Breton defined Surrealism as a 
"pure psychical automatic activi- 
ty which expresses, verbally or 
through any other means, the ac- 
tual working of the mental 
process." He believed in the 
power of the human mind which 
would be liberated by freeing it 
from all constraints, those of 
rationality as well as those of con- 
ventional morality. 

He sought to discover these 
powers in dreams, hypnotic 
trances, and artificially induced 
states of madness. Surrealists 
demonstrated considerable in- 
terest in the process which led to 
the creation of primitive art, in ar- 



tists touched with madness, 
(Bosch, Fussli, Grandville, Sadc, 
Poe. Lautreamont, Rimbaud ... ). 
in the art of patients in mental in- 
slilulions. They also anticipated 
the current interest in the occult 
(astrology, alchemy, fortune tell- 
ing ... ). 

The so-called counterculture is 
little more than a return to the 
dominant concerns of Surrealism: 
in the twenties, the Surrealists 
were already advocating the ex- 
panding of consciousness, freeing 
the mind from cultural, rational, 
and institutional constraints. They 
called for the sexual revolution 
(they wrote the pamphlet Hands 
off love! as a protest against 
puritanical American laws). They 
extolled Oriental wisdom. 
Buddhism and the cult of the 
Dalai Lama. They valued spon- 
taneous action (the happening was 
one of their inventions). 

They also initialed many of the 
techniques which were used some 
fifty years later by students in 
revolt: the parody of Establish- 
ment institutional form (mock 
trials of important figures for 
their "crimes" against the people, 
insulting letters addressed to the 
Pope, subversive stickers ("Open 
the Prisons! Disband the army!"), 
political agitation against colonial 
wars, and against compulsory 
military service, etc. 

As a movement. Surrealism at- 
tracted so many talents that a 
listing of those who, at one time or 
another, were associated with it 
reads like a Who's Who of the 
20lh century world of arts and 
letters: in literature, Breton.

January term 

Continued from pg. I 

fee of SI25. With only three 
months remaining, the Winter 
Study Committee, has quite a job 
ahead of it if Winter Study is to be 
a reality in January of 1975. 



By Lin Frackman 76 

Senate unanimously passed a 
motion Monday night to assign to 
the Residence Policy Committee 
the task of re-evaluating the 
residence contract. CG also pass- 
ed a recommendation to 
Academic Council that students 
be entitled to petition professors 
in December to receive academic 
credit for independent work done 
during Winter Study (Jan. 1 1-31). 

Cin'dy Israel, 76, Senate rep 
from Cazcnovc, asked if students 
can occupy their rooms now if 
they have not signed the residence 
contract, and whether the contract 
permits the College to put other 
students in the rooms during 
Winter Study period. Susan Fedo, 
Director of Student Services, 
answered both in the affirmative. 

Abby Franklin, '75, Chief 
Justice, moved that Senate 



reconstitute the special ad-hoc 
honor code committee of last year 
to evaluate and make recommen- 
dations concerning the future 
status of the honor code. This 
committee will include students, 
faculty members and ad- 
ministrators, and will not have the 
power to change legislation. It will 
examine the questions of whether 
the code functions now, how to 
make it function better should to 
have self-scheduled exams, and 
whether the code should be more 
explicit as opposed to implicit. 
CG passed the motion. 

Mrs. Fedo emphasized that 
contrary to common belief on 
campus, the federal law allowing 
students to see all records does not 
have effect until November 19. 
She added that the law has two 
purls. The first opens all in- 
dividual records, but the second 



How To Count Preferential Ballots 

1. Count the total number of ballots. 

2. Arrange all ballots in 5 (or 6 elc.) piles according to names mark- 
ed with "I". 

3. Record results, i.e. number of "I" votes for each individual and 
take total to check (in case one ballot eventually does not count, in 
"total" write: "120 plus I invalid ballot, if, for example, the total 
was 121.) 

4. Take smallest pile and redistribute this pile among the remaining 
4 piles, according to highest vote (i.e. according to lowest number, in 
this case according to "2"s.) Mark each of the distributed ballots 
with a 2 (in order to be able to count additions to first vote.) 

5. Record count in 4 piles. 

6. Take smallest pile from these 4 piles and redistribute remaining 3 
piles according to highest vote (i.e. lowest number); mark each of 
these ballots with a "3". Check to see if the second place vote of 
those ballots can still be valid (i.e. if a number is written down). Go 
to no. 3 only if second candidate choice has been eliminated 
previously. 

7. Continue in this manner until one person has more than half the 
total number of ballots originally marked and counted. 

In case of a tie at the end between two people, back up to 
preceding ballot and take highest betwecrl the two who lied i.e., if 
there is a tie in last column back up to second to last column. In case 
of a tie on all ballots, i.e., in all columns, the two tellers "draw lots". 



Slater defines its role 



By Babette Pettersen 78 

Slater can be considered 
Wcllesley's center for foreign af- 
fairs. This year the committee is 
anxious to define Slater and 
promote participation within the 
campus community. 

Although Slater has been a part 
of the college for three years, a 
major effort is being made this 
year to outline all its work, its ac- 
tivities, and its importance within 
Wcllesley. The committee is eager 
to encourage a greater participa- 
tion so that everyone can benefit 
from the diversity of cultures and 
experiences of the foreign 
students 

Slater is. however, not merely a 
select club Tor Wellesley's 
foreigners, but an international 
organization open to Americans 
who have lived abroad, those who 
have participated in the A.F.S 
program, and anyone who might 
be genuinely interested in learning 
and hearing more about non- 
American cultures. 

Each week, the college bulletin 
contains another interesting ac- 
tivity at Slater There will be 
slide-shows, panel discussions. 



and cultural exchanges 
throughout the. semester in the 
hope that Mr. Slater's motto, 
"Great International Understan- 
ding" can become integrated in 
the society. 

The house itself is beautifully 
furnished, with a comfortable liv- 
ing room, where members and 
their friends can listen to inter- 
national music, current U.S. 
records, or merely enjoy meeting 
other students who have ex- 



There are occasionally dinners, 
each ope featuring a different in- 
ternational cuisine. In early 
November, there will be a panel 
discussion, led by Mr. Max-neef. 
Visiting Professor of Political 
Science probably following the 
film, "A Stage of Siege," if it is 
available. 

The foreign students, or the 
Americans having lived abroad 
will be giving slide shows from 
different countries, to help further 



perienced a diversity of foreign understanding about the people 
cultures, visited foretgn countries, and the way in which they live 
or those who hve outside America i — ; 



who live outside America 
themselves. 

American Studies 

Continued fr. pg. I 
towards a study of American 
culture in general rather than a 
specific discipline. 

The reason for the lack of 
American Studies offerings is, ac- 
cording to Mr. Vanderpool, 
Wcllesley's strict departmental 
structure which makes any inter- 
disciplinary activity difficult. 
With twenty junior and senior 
majors and the enthusiasm of Mr. 
Vanderpool, some definite action 
is expected soon in the area of 
American Studies.

protects these records from third I

Mrs. Mclvin. Dean of the Cla« I 
of 75, stated that it is still no , 
clear what records are referred to 
as "records" in the new law, but I 
that psychiatric records will prob- ! 
ably not be included. However 
recommendations from professors! 
will be under the law. Mrs. Mclvin I 
emphasized that graduate schools 
seem to think that it's better if the 
students does not get to see her 
recommendations. Dean Mclvin 
added that any student is welcome 
to see any recommendation that 
she writes. 

~ Angela Freyre, 76, Vice- 
President for On-Campus Affairs, 
clarified the difference between a 
recognition form for on-campus 
clubs and a constitution. The 
recognition form is for one year 
only and u club cannot request 
SOFC funds under it. A constitu- 
tion must be renewed every three 
years and under it a club can 
schedule elections, request SOFC 
funds, etc. 

Susan Challenger, 76, Senate 
rep from Tower Court, added thai 
CG can recognize an organization 
but is not (hereby bound to grant 
it SOFC funds. A club can be per- 
mitted to meet on campus, 
without meeting the requirements 
to receive a grant from SOFC.

New Hea ds of House broaden position with varied backgrounds 



By Mary Jo Ruben "77 



"Head of House" is a posi- 
lion (hat is subject to individual 
interpretation and definition. 
Some have questioned the 
necessity for such a position. 
This year, Stone-Davis is the 
first dorm to eliminate the 
Head of House position and to 
run the dorm solely on student 
effort. All other dorms on cam- 
pus have "Heads of House." 
Shafcr, Tower Court, Mungcr, 
McAfee. Claflin and Severance 
all have new Heads, of House 
this year. 




she has been here. Nora has 
found her new job very in- 
teresting. The position or Head 
or House at Wcllcsley appealed 
to her because of the oppor- 
tunity io work with college 
level students. The beauty or 
the campus and the location 
were other positive ractors. She 
is anxious to become an active 
part or community life on cam- 
pus. Nora docs not sec the role 
or Head of House as an ab- 
solute role. In it arc 
possibilities for offering a 
variety or things. Having a 
Head or House gives students 
an opportunity to come into 
contact with people at different 
levels and styles or living. Nora 
approves or the experiment at 
Stone-Davis but reels that both 
options or an independent 
student-run dorm and a Head

Shafcr's new Head or House

Mrs. Tiajuana (Tina) Mosby 



has been appointed the new 
Head or House at McAfee. 
Tina has a B.A. from Howard 
University and has pursued her 
doctoral studies there. She has 
served as an admissions officer 
at Pembroke College, the 
Director of a Boston Model 
Cities project, and a teacher at 
Newton South High School. In 
coming to Wcllesley, Mrs. 
Mosby was looking for a job 
that would enable her to spend 
a maximum amount or time 
with her two year old daughter 
and still be in the educational 
field, so as "not to get 
cobwebs." While approving or 
the experiment at Stone-Davis 
that is allowing students the 
opportunity for experimenta- 
tion, Tina feels there is 
something missing when 
students run a dorm. The back- 
ground or a Head or House 
often enables her to handle- 
personal problems that stu- 
dents might not want to con- 
fide to another student. There 
is an element or confidentiality 
that is reassuring. Tina is 
enthusiastic about the oppor- 
tunities such as cultural 
programs, movies, speakers, 
and the nearby town that 
Wcllcsley offers, but cautions 
against the dangers of isola- 
tion. She says, "You can forget 
what the real world is like. 
Young adults should get out — 
not just the MIT bus into Cam- 
bridge or to a Harvard mixer."

put things in perspective for 
students. 

The new Head or House at 
Claflin is Janice McQuaid. 
Janice has a B.S. from the 
University or Pennsylvania and 
studied at the San Francisco 
Academy or Art. She has serv- 
ed as an Editor/Designer with 
Random House, Inc. and the 
Children's Television 
Workshop (Sesame Street). 
She coauthored the book Lear- 
ning Through Play. The new 
position at Claflin has worked 
out well for her and her family; 
the baby especially loves it. 
Janice views her role mainly as 
a resource person who is 
available to people on the halls 
in whatever way needed. One 
function or the Head or House 
is to establish continuity from 
year to year; not just the 
mechanics or running a dorm. 
She finds it difficult to define 
the role or Head or House, see- 
ing il as being in a state or flux

Alum print reflections in "After Images" 



By Flo Davis '76 

What exactly is it that keeps a 
group or Welleslcy alumnae, 3,- 
000 miles away, active in alumnae 
affairs??? 

How can a Los Angeles alumna 
retain her "sense" or Wellesley, 
with its lake, green hills, and brick 
buildings when Los Angeles has 
desert, stucco, and cacti??? 

Il sounds easy: have a meeting, 
decide to put together a book 
about Wcllesley for the Centen- 
nial Celebration, and sell it. 

But at least ten alumnae dis- 
covered that organizing and 
publishing a collection of essays 
by. "distinguished alumnae" is 
anything but easy. 

After Images 

Wellesley: After Images: reflec- 
tions on their college years by 45 
alumnae, had its inception in a 
publishing course at the Universi- 
ty of Southern California. 

Student Muriel Pfaclzer Bodek 
'48 learned that Harvard Univer- 
sity had published a collection or 
alumni essays for its 300th an- 
niversary, "Mickey" went to the 
local Wellesley Club to convince 
fellow alumnae of the potential 
merits of such a project lor 
Wcllcsley. 

The College had to be con- 
vinced, too. Approval was quickly 
granted by the Administration, 
but with a warning as to the dif- 
ficulties of such a project. 

Mickey and other alumnae, 
(particularly Susan Slocum 
Hinerfeld '57) now admit that the 
went into the project "blindly". 



despite the College warning. 

"Bui I'd say", beamed Sue, 
"(hat we've muddled through in 
fine shape." 

Arduous Process 

The first step in (he arduous 
process or completing the collec- 
tion or essays was to solicit names 
or alumnae to be placed into 
nomination for a place in (he 
book. 

Wcllcsley clubs from across the 
country submitted nearly 200 
nimes. The College provided 
biographical information on each 
of the nominees. 

Then, the d i ffi cu 1 1 and 
sometimes painful process of 
narrowing the field of con- 
tributors began. 

Neophyte editors, the alumnae 
wanted a collection of essays 
reflecting (he diversity or decades, 
professions and geography. The 
field was narrowed to 85. 

Letters were sent oul to each or 
the 85 women, requesting their 
contributions for the book. 

Finally, 45 essays were sub- 
milted. 

The Essayists 

Tremendous differences in 
character exist between the 
authors, but each alumnae con- 
tributor can be labeled 
"dynamic". 

Missing, says Sue Hinerfeld, is 
an essay from someone who 
"simply stayed at home ... a 
reflective, yet passive alumna." 

From the brier biographies at 
the beginning or each essay, it is 
easy to see that passivity was 
never a watchword at Wellesley ... 



even back in 1909, the class year 
or the first essayist, Lucy Wilson. 

From 1909, a veritable parade 
or profession. ils begins. 

Harriet Stratmeyer Adams '14 
authored, under various 
pseudonyms, the Nancy Drew and 
Dana Girl series. . 

Mayling Soong Chiang '17, 
belter known as Madame Chiang 
Kai-shek, has published more 
(han one dozen books, and 
remains active in social and 
political affairs on Taiwan. 

Marion Klein Sanders '25, 
winner or (he Wellesley Alumnae 
Award in 1973, is the author or 
several books and an editor of two 
publications. 

Barbara Loomis Jackson '50, 
active professionally in urban af- 
fairs both in Boston and Atlanta, 
discusses, in her essay, the situa- 
tion for black students on campus, 
(hen and now. 

Ali McGraw McQueen '60 sent 
a poem instead or an essay. Amy 
B. Daunis '74 finishes off the 
collection with her essay, "Winds 
or Change". 

Each contributor is aware or 
the Centennial — a filling theme, 
us the book represents the Los 
Angeles Wellesley clubs' con- 
tribution to the Centennial 
celebrations. 

L.A. Alumnae: Action 

Several names arc mentioned 
whenever the book or essays is dis- 
cussed. Janet Creus '57 and Judy 



Richards Hope '61 (one or the es- 
sayists and Bob Hope's daughter- 
in-law) were instrumental in 
motivating the small, but very ac- 
tive alumnae clubs around the 
idea or a collection or essays 

Sue Hinerfeld '57, editor or the 
book, worked with Marjorie 
Miller '50, in spite orsome not-so- 
well-hiddcn pessimism about (he 
project. But, as one alumna said, 
"The book is good because or 
Sue." 

Many others, loo numerous (o 
mention helped with the drudge 
work or proofreading, typing, and 
correcting. 

The final result is a book with 
45 parts, and a few important 
themes. Il is a time line through 
the twentieth century of Wellesley 
College, its faculty, its students, 
and its campus.

On Sunday. September 29 at S

small groups and surrounded by 
rows upon rows of empty seals 

Ai 8:15 ihc lights dimmed and 
Janis lun walked out on the stage, 
looking about the same size as her

She tried lo laugh off the sparse 
turnout, saying, "Well. I'm not

away again. No one can maintain 
this speed for more than three or 
lour years, so eventually you have 
lo just walk away or you 'fuck 
yourself up." 

She looked pensive, "You 
know, this is a weird business lor a 
woman, I mean a woman artist as 
opposed lo a singer who sings her 

lover's songs 

"Mule musicians aren't that in- 
terested in female musicians — 
except for going lo bed." 

Her major creative influences 
are Baez, Dylan, and the Beatles; 

"At one lime. I wanted to be 
Joan Baez more than anything in 
Ihc world." 

She considers herself a song 
writer, not a poel: "Poets are peo- 
ple like T.S. Eliot and Wallace 
Stevens. You can't cover both 
things at the same lime — most 
hues iiisi don't hold up without 
music. Poetry and songwriting are 
Iwo different crafts." 

She was then interrupted by 
Iwo leens knocking on the door. 
They seemed rather wide-eyed 
about the backstage atmosphere 
"Janis? We just wanted lo say hi 
and tell you how much wc enjoyed 
the show." 

"Thanks a lot " Janis grinned 
ul them. "Anyone who wants to 
say hi should be able lo gel back 
here." 

After the visitors left, Ms. Ian 
mused, "You know, people 
shouldn't be astonished by folk 
singers ... it's jusl anolher job." 




Fllcn Ready, Vil Junior, reacts strongly to fellow students' disbelief. She's sure Ihe guy next door is preg.

Gillian jostles creative careen 



By Emily Yoffe '77 



Penelope Gillian, a woman of 
prolific talent and insight, read 
one of her short stories: "As We 
Have Learnt Prom Freud. There 
Are No Jokes." and spoke about 
writing September 24 in Jewell. 

Ms. Gilliall authored the 
screenplay of "Sunday Bloody 
Sunday." She is currently direc- 
ting and producing a film, and 
working on two film scripts. Six 
months of ihc year she is film 
critic lor the "New Yorker." 

Her career commenced al the 
age of five when she began her 
own magazine, for a devoted 
readership of one. her sister. 

"My sister, who is now a con- 
siderable sculptor, and has red 
hair that makes mine look brown. 
meticulously copied oul the 
magazine for me, and this was 
before she could read." 

from those auspicious begin- 



nings. Ms. Gilliall went on lo 
write for a somewhat larger 
audience. By the time she was IS 
she had won enough short story 
prizes lo garner a scholarship at 
Bennington. 

She entered Oxford on retur- 
ning lo her native England While 
i here several of her plays were 
produced by ihe BBC. 

She became a journalist at the 
age of twenty, writing for ihc 
"New Statesman." 

It's only now. as a film director 
that she has encountered her first 
"difficulty in being a girl. Though 
I don't yet have to wave a 
hy stereciomy certificate. 

"Producers really think women 
are good al details, bul bad 
overall. 

"They're afraid the crew won't 
obey a woman's voice, and there'll 
he mayhem on the floor. They 
don't trust a woman with millions 
of dollars." 



Dreyfus, Rehearse! 



Man Ray: Life with Dada 



By S herry Kramer '75 

"Collecting is a disease, il is be- 
ing possessed bv a demon. I- don't" 
own the collection — Ihe collec- 
tion owns me" Arnold Crane said 
Monday over apple pic and ice 
cream ai the College Club. 

In possession of one of the 
finest private collections of 
photography in this country. Ar- 
nold Crane is a man passionately. 
devoted lo ihe an 

\ photographer himself as well 
as a lawyer, he has managed to 
assemble one of ihe two most 
comprehensive collections of Man 
Ray in Ihe world, which is now on 
display in Jewell through. 
November 3 

Arnold C rane is 42 years old. 
He shaves his head twice a day. 
He has been shot al while covering 
a police shool-oul in his press 
photographing days, and suffered 
a broken foot while shooting D fire- 
in Chicago. 

A practicing lawyer in Chicago, 
he worked his way through bolh 
college and law school hy selling 
photographs to newspapers ai 20- 
25 dollars a shot Even now he 
divides his life between his pra- 
nce and his passion for 
photographs 

His allachmenl lo Man Ray 
preceded their first meeting in 
I96X in Paris where Crane hud 



gone lo pholograph and interview 
Man Ray as pari of a series he 
was a 1 1 e m p t i n g about 
photographers, but Crane has 
since made up for any lost time. Il 
has taken him only six years lo 
put together his assormcnl of Ihc 
art of Man Ray. 

Crane spent Iwo days at 
Wellesley, where he spoke lo Ihc 
Docenis. the Wellesley Friends of 
Art. and Monday nighi to the 
college at large as pari or ihe 
Surrealism Celebration. 
^The show is ihe cream of 
Crane's collection, which Crane 
feels has al leasl one example of 
all the "crucial' pieces "by Man 
Ray 

The exhibit primarily consists 
"I ihc 1962 Bibliothequc National 
show which Crane purchased 
from Mun Kay some>\hal recent- 
ly, supplemented with picces« 
boughl Separately met Ihe years 

Included are many early 
rayographs, which are im- 
pressions left upon 
photographically sensitive paper 
by objects placed on ihe papei 
when il is exposed lo light; print, 

made bj the solarizalion process, 
where the negative when partiallj 
developed is Hashed with light; 
portraits often composed of 
several negatives of the same sub- 
ject; one college; and several ex- 
periments in color 



The exhibit is all contained in 
the main gallery, with the Crane 
photographs of artisls and friends 
in Ihc front hall. Ann Gabhart, 
Jewell Curator, and her staff have 
arranged Ihc an in somewhat 
•chronological order, bul have 
resisted ihc urge to line each of 
Man Rays works parallel to each 
oihcr and evenly spaced Instead 
there exist groupings, scries, little 
clumps of images that share the 
eye-space of Ihe viewer. 

In the- hall are several portraits 
of Man Ray by Arnold Crane. 
C rane considers these his favorites 
among his own work. They are 
only one part of Crane's efforts to 
bring Man Ray and "the 
mysterious filmings of Man's 
mind" lo places like Wellesley. 




By Emily Yoffe '77 

"Dreyfus in Rehearsal" at Ihc 
Shuberl Theatre now through Oc- 
tober 14. not only needs more 
rehearsal, bul extensive editing and 
new second and third act. 

This play-wiihin-a-play is set in 
Poland in 1931. An amateur 
Jewish theatre troupe is pulling on 
a production Iheir director has 
written about Ihe Dreyfus affair of 
35 years ago. in France. 

They engage in amusing bicker- 
ing about everything, hut especial- 
ly of ihc relevance of a play about 
anti-Semitism. They don'l hear 
the rumblings of Ihc cataclysm in 
Ihcii "civilized" world. 

"Dreyfus In Rehearsal" stars 
Ruth Gordon and Sam Levene, 
iwo forty year theatre veterans, 
and consummate aclors. The) ire 
such commanding presences lhat 
lor them one is willing lo ignore 
Ihe less than fresh jokes and over- 
ihealricalily of ihe first act. 

Vet One does hold some- 
promise li establishes the loving 
antagonism of ihe troupe. It also 
sets a lone of foreboding; one 
knows the hitler anli-semiiism ol 
the Dreyfus ease is soon lo 
reemerge and destroy the lives of 

these Jewish aclors. 

Bui ihc production simply falls 
apart ai <\a Two, which is a series 
ol meaningless and redundant 
vignettes, 

The relationships have already 
been established, wc don't need 
anymore explanation. Worse, an 



irrelevant scene with a visiting 
Zionist destroys any remaining 
continuity. 

Finally, some Polish Anti- 
Semites come in and beat up the 
director, and Ihe theatre's elderly 
caretaker 

The Poles are played 
melodrama iica II j and 

amateurishly by Mich'alc Pendry 
and Rex Williams. The whole 
scene is so unconvincing thai it 
dissipates what should be ihe 
height of our concern and lension. 

Act Three finds the iroupc 
scattered throughout Europe, with 
the newlyweds Michael and 
Myriam (who played Dreyfus and 
his wife) escaping lo Berlin. 

By (he lime wc get this piece of 
news, the whole enterprise has 
gone so flat, it seems a gratuitous 
pull al our bored-stiff heart 
strings. 

Besides Ms. Gordon and Mr. 
Levene, the cast has several other 
actors of note, particularly Peter 
Kastner as Michael/Dreyfus, and 
Tovah Feldshuh as Myriam. 

Perhaps ihe most eogenl com- 
menl on "Dreyfus in Rehearsal" 
comes Iron, ., member ol the cast 
itself: "Oy. oy oy, oy." 



She finds no dichotomy in boll 
working in film, and criticizing if 

"Criticism seems a natural 
thing lo do, if you love film ai 
much as I do. I'm fortunate that 
al the "New Yorker" I'm able to 
write only about films I like." 

Ms. Gillial does her writing it 
long hand in bound black 
notebooks, which now nuinbci 
forty: 

"The writing's then transcribed 
by a very patient secretary. 

"I had written to Woody Allen 
once, and his reply was, "It was so 
nice lo gel a letter from you 
please do write again, and thu 
lime you might even make it 
legible.'' 

"Besides having unreadable 
handwriting. I also am organized 
so thai page 346 of one notebook 
might go with 342 in another." 

In creating a vast and diver 
sificd body of characters, she hai 
found, "one gets a bit aii 
drogenous when a writer. 

"I've probably written more 
stories about males and the verj 
old than anything else. 

"All of us contain ever) 
possibility all the time. We are all 
age I and 95, male and female.' 

Translating her characters from 
paper to flesh was easy, she found 
when" working with people like 
Glenda Jackson, "Sunday Blood) 
Sunday's" heroine. 

"Glenda is an extraordinary ac- 
tress. Wc did a lot of rehearsal 
and improvisation before ihe film 
started. By the time we began 
shooting, wc both knew exactly 
w hat Alex would have done in an) 
situation al age 17 or 42." 
"My Father" 

Though producer of two artists, 
Ms. Gillian's father is not himself 
in the arls. 

"My father is a recently retired 
judge, and a classicist at Oxford 
He worries dreadfully about hit 
two dissident redheads who lead 
such strange careers. 

"He's also convinced that I 
can I be making any money. He's 
always telling me he's reading ni) 
books carefully at the Athcncum 
This is so I won't send them, and 
I'll save (he postage. 

"He's a smashing man. I think 
he partly believes I sprang from 
his lefl thigh "

work involved replicating the ear- 
ly experiments in which the en- 
zymes responsible for light 
production were characterized. 

Those efforts, however, led to 
the project I pursued for the last 6 
weeks of the summer: the quan- 
tification of light output from the 
photocytes (light-producing cells) 
of Clyiia edwardsi. That project 
was my first exposure to serious 
and pure reserach, the data from 
which I would have to defend. It 
was also my first experience with 
considerable frustrating ex- 
perimental failure, and finally 
with the ecstasy of experimental 
success. 

Those experiences plus the op- 
portunity to live among an ex- 
cellent and active scientific com- 
munity are invaluable to me as I 
begin to make decisions with 
respect to graduate school and 
future work. I urge any of you 
who are interested to investigate 
the MBL program. I haven't 
begun to tell you of the delights of 
Friday night lectures, the frequent 
seminars, the sailboats, ... and the 



wonderful people who never fail to 
share your excitement over your 
latest "discovery!" 



Interested in photography? 
Would you like to learn how to 
develop your own film? A 
beginner's darkroom course is 
now being offered. There will 
be two sections (Wed. and 
Thurs. evenings) and each sec- 
tion will consist of 5-6 
meetings. Come to Schneider 
Center Office to sign up. Cost: 
$20.00.

essential here, in which case we 
have ihe right and the duly to ask 
universal allegiance, or else we no 
longer agree that honesty is essen- 
tial to our communily. 

We cannot divorce our 
procedures from our ideals: 
neither can we isolate our ideals 
from our procedures. To do ihe 
former is lo operate in a moral 
vacuum; lo do the latter is lo 
cheat our ideals of their value. 
"Creating the awareness of the ex- 
istence and ihe imporlance of an 
ideal, such as honesty, and of a 
procedure, such as the honor 
system, is not enough. We must 
act in such a way that our prin- 
ciples and methods remain 
manifestly interdependent. 

We are here lo learn more than 
ihe ins and oui's of academia. 
We are here lo learn more than 
the values of "personal integrity. 
academic evploration and 
achievement, and cooperative 
living." We musl learn also the 
place these values hold in a larger 
context of values. If wc do not ac- 
complish this. We have learned Ut- 
ile, and our profession of the 
merits of a Wellesley education is 
nothing but a highly sophisticated 
and tragically misleading vanity. 



henl, bul issued strict rules against 
recruiters being paid and 
-soliciting from high schools, for 
example. 

The schools offering these 
awards are all coed except for tiny 
Immaculala College in Penn- 
sylvania, a national women's 
basketball power. The rationale 
behind the scholarships musl ob- 
tain from this fact of coeducation, 
which implies an already existing 
funding program for men. The 
financial help for women then 
comes from reshuffling of present 
resources within these schools. 

And what reshuffling! The 
University, o( Miami came up 
with S50.000 and Colorado Stale 
hopes lo up its S 14. 100 allotment 
lo S55.000 for women athletes this 
year, to name iwo big ones. 

Title IX. which prohibits any 
educational institution that 
receives federal money from dis- 
criminating against employees or 
students on ihe basis of sev. is 
specific in the area of women stu- 
dents although the guidelines 
explaining what it will mean to 
schools are not finalized yet by the 
government. It expounds on the 
discrimination clauses in Title VII 
of the same Educational 
Amendments Acl of 1972. 

Ironically, ihe women's schools 
benefit Ihe least from Title IX and 
the ensuing extension of oppor- 
tunities to women athletes: since 
there is no discrimination at these 
institutions, and no source of 
funds such as those from football 
gate receipts at coed schools, the 
single-sex institution lacks im- 
petus lowards radical change. 

Chin up. Wellesley. Some fine 
female athletes are wilh you.

"Tennis anyone?" 

Once an exclusive activity of 
the country club set, lennis has 
now left the private courts of Ihe 
Wealthy and entered the urban 
sports stadiums of the nation. 
Summer. I974, saw the somewhat 
inconspicuous debut of 
professional World Team Tennis. 
(WTT). to an already sports- 
saluratcd audience. 

From amidst the ever-' 
incrcasing morass of football, 
hockey, baseball and basketball 
leagues. WTT has made its way to 
the back page or Ihe NEWS by 
virtue of its unique and 
revolutionary coed character. 

Internationally top-ranked 
players such as John Ncwcombc, 
Jimmy Connors, and Ken 
Rosewall compete alongside some 
of ihe best women from ihe 
Virginia Slims circuit, like Rosic 
Casals, Evonne Goolagong and. 
of course. Bill ic Jean King. 

The most obvious absenlee 
from this assemblage is Chris 
Evert. While many of the good 
women players were involved in 
WTT, Ms. Evert romped through 
most of her tournaments and 
walked off with over S 100,000 in 
winnings. 

Quite obviously, women pros 
need not solely rely on WTT to 
earn a living. In addition to the 
financial rewards, team lennis 
offers women greater public ex- 
posure and an opportunity lo 
achieve iruly equal standing wilh 
respect to men players. 

A WTT match consists of five 
sets of tennis — one each of 
women's singles, men's singles, 
women's doubles, men's doubles 
and mixed doubles. The scoring 
system has been simplified so thai 
the first player to win four points 
wins ihe game, while six games 
plus a two-game advantage are 



needed to win a match. When the 
score is 6-6, a single-game tie- 
breaker is played lo determine the 
winner of ihe set. The team totals 
for games won decides the victor 
of ihe mutch. 

Thus, the sets played by the 
women arc just as important as 
those played Ivy the men. This fact 
has served to increase Ihe respect 



Florida Flamingoes, the 
Pittsburgh Triangles and ihe 
Minnesota Buckins, as well as the 
Chicago Aces. Cleveland Nets 
and champion Denver Racquets. 
The local representatives arc 
i he Boston Lobsters, headed by 
such "locals" as Australia's Kerry 
Melville and England's Roger 
Taylor. The team's player-coach is

for Ihe women from both Ihe male 
players and the male fans. In ad- 
dition, play in the final set of mix- 
ed doubles is frequently decisive 
for ihe match. 

During this past season, each 
team in Ihe four regional divisions 
played a tolal of 44 matches over 
a three-month span. The cities 
represented in WTT extend from 
New York to Houston to Los 
Angeles lo Hawaii. The 16 teams 
■ hear such diverse monickers as the 




Ion Tiriac from Transylvania. 
Rumania. Honest. With his heavy 
black moustache and thick accent, 
he is referred to as Count 
Dracula. Naturally. 

Last July 28. ihis author had 
the opportunity to attend the 
Lobsters in a match agatnsl ihe 
league powerhouse, the 
Philadelphia Freedoms, led by the 
only female player-coach in any 
sport. Billie Jean King. 

Having never viewed any lennis 
at ihe exclusive Longwood 
Cricket Club in nearby Chestnut 
Hill. Mass.. I was probably not as 
shocked as I could have been lo 
see the carnival atmosphere per- 
vading Boston University's
